Event description
Help restore Grayson Creek by planting CA native plants!

About this Event

Join The Restoration Trust, Friends of Pleasant Hill Creeks, and the Contra Costa Resource Conservation District for a CA native planting event in Pleasant Hill! We will be planting native plant plugs along a portion of the eastern bank of Grayson Creek near Diablo Valley College. Revegetating the creek with native plants makes it more difficult for non-native invasive plants to establish themselves, and it provides habitat and food for wildlife.

For this event, we are limiting registration to 30 volunteers, so sign up ASAP. We hope you'll join us!
